House as well as barn on full view, and we found the guide to be knowledgeable and helpful. Be careful to dodge the poop in the barn.

We had no idea the role that Mrssrs. Marsh, Billings and Rockefeller played in conservation throughout our country, let alone that they all called Woodstock home. Don't miss this museum if you go to Woodstock.

Friendly staff and friendly farm animals. The tour through the farm house was educational and fun! Good place to visit, for all ages. Wagon ride was nice even though the animals were sheltered for the season. We would return.

Went on a chilly, drizzly day so didn't have ice cream but it looked good. Dairy cows were friendly (well some) and actually licked my husband's arm. Interesting how people lived. The applesauce being cooked in the farmhouse smelled fantastic.

Be sure to visit the cow barn and search out the calves who will wrestle for your attention and the mid-afternoon sheep briefing and discover that sheep are very happy to eat their bran food from your hand or wherever else you elect to put it. The docents do a great job in the farm managers house and don't miss... More
